An underwater surprise

This news is from Arizona, USA. Somebody snorkels in the Colorado River. The person finds something. It is two human skeletons!

The person calls the police. The police come. They look at the skeletons. They see that they are not real.

Somebody put the skeletons into the water for fun. The skeletons even have names – Bernie and Bernadette. They may bring tourists to the area.

Difficult words: snorkel (to swim with your head under the water and put a thing for breathing in your mouth – a snorkel), skeleton (all the bones in your body), may (can).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
